Opportunity is missed by most people
because it is dressed in overalls
and looks like work. ~Thomas Edison
I used this quote in my speech at graduation a few years back. Since graduation season is upon us, I thought it would be a good time to drag it out again.
This is actually something I have been thinking about a lot over the past few months. It also ties in with my 2010 word of the year (change)…and it definitely influenced my decision to take classes again, starting in the fall. As the saying goes, you have to make your own opportunities…and sometimes, opportunities take a lot of work!
What work are you doing to prepare for upcoming opportunities?
